Bulls Send Mike Dunleavy To The Cavs

JULY 7th, 8:04pm: The trade is official, the Cavaliers announced.

JULY 6th, 9:06pm: The Bulls will send Mike Dunleavy to the Cavs, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical (Twitter link). Cleveland will use a trade exception to bring Dunleavy to the team, Brian Windhorst of ESPN.com reports (Twitter link). LeBron James personally recruited Dunleavy as a free agent last summer, as K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune mentions on Twitter.

The Bucks were also in pursuit of the veteran small forward, Marc Stein of ESPN.com tweets. Chicago needed to shed salary after agreeing to a deal with Dwyane Wade.

The defending champs were reportedly looking for a wing player this summer and Dunleavy should be a nice addition. He shot 39.4% from downtown in 31 games for the Bulls last season.

    Dunleavy is a nice guy but past his prime and overpaid.

      Which is why he is a perfect fit as a part time player on a legitimate contender. His limited minutes will allow him to excell, and the cavs really need a player exactly like him. Good deal.

      He’s making $5 mil last year. That’s hardly a financial burden. If he can continue to hit 3’s and spread the floor then he can help. My guess is he will replace James Jones?

    I hope this doesn’t preclude a JR Smith return.

      That would be a nightmare. JR is a two way back later and difficult to find in the NBA. Cavs, I believe can offer him what ever they want due to him already been on the Cavs.

    Perfect offseason signing for a defending champion. All they need are two or three 3-pointers from Dunleavy a night off the bench.

    Good move by the Cavs. He’d actually be able to spell LeBron.
